As requested by an anon, here’s my (shortened) version of the beautiful song sung at the end of “The Rings of Akhaten”. I had to fudge on some of the words at the beginning because it was difficult to make them out, but I really hope you guys like it. (Best with headphones.)

This is Akhaten’s Hymn.

BBC Showcase Marks 50 Years of ‘Doctor Who’ with Symphonic Spectacular

On Tuesday night (February 26) in Liverpool, BBC Worldwide Showcase paid tribute to one of the BBC’s most successful and long-running global franchises, Doctor Who, as the series heads toward its 50th anniversary this November.

Mark Williams (who played Rory’s father Brian in Season 7) hosted the Doctor Who Showcase Symphonic Spectacular, a celebration of Murray Gold’s epic music score for the show. Led by the boyishly Tennant-esque Ben Foster as conductor, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Sense of Sound choir made Gold’s compositions sound even more mythic. The soloists Daniel Keating-Roberts and Elin Manahan Thomas lent their voices to a couple of the numbers; Thomas was particularly moving with her soprano renderings of “Madman with a Box” and the gorgeous “Abigail’s Song.”

Read the entire story at Anglophenia.

I recently discovered Chameleon Circuit.

We were strangers starting out on a journey,
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through.
Now here we are, and I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you…

Guise, so Halia Meguid, the voice of The Siren in Curse of the Black Spot is on Tumblr.

We’ve mentioned this before but it’s absolutely never not worth mentioning again. She posts amazing “covers” of music from Doctor Who. And, of course, she’s a massive Whovian. Her tumblr is dustyteeth.

AT LAST! A NEW DOCTOR WHO COVER! This is the first one I’ve done in about a year, with original lyrics, and it’s especially surreal and cool because this is a cover of the as-yet-unnamed track I originally sang myself in the episode “The Angels Take Manhattan.” Music by Murray Gold, I did the words. I hope you like! 

AMELIA (from Doctor Who: “The Angels Take Manhattan”)

The city roof
is tipping down.
The evening’s high, 
lights litter ground.

I close my eyes.
I pray to stone. 
Do angels weep
when they’re alone?

This is farewell, 
the last there’ll be.
My waiting’s done now.
Remember me. 

The smoky sky,
the bullet stars…
I walked them once,
They seem so far.

You call my name,
begging me back.
“Remember silence?
Remember cracks?”

Now that i’m here,
Can I just say:
I’d love to come back,
But not today.

This is farewell, 
the last there’ll be.
My waiting’s done now.
Remember me. 

Somewhere back there,
before the world,
beside a house,
there was a girl.

She ran away -
at least she tried.
He never came.
She never cried.

Since I am here, 
May I just say:
I’d love to run now, 
but not today.

This is farewell, 
the last there’ll be.
My waiting’s done now.
Remember me. 

(INSTRUMENTAL)  

If stories end,
if we should fall, 
we fall together,
or not at all.

This is farewell,
the last there’ll be.
My waiting’s done now.
Remember me. 

Thx for reminding us, daysandhours!
